Merry Pissed-mas: A Christmas & New Years Eve booze guide

Well what a year it’s been! We’ve had our world’s rocked upside down and while there’ve definitely been highs for some there’s been rock bottom lows for other.

What we need now is to relax into the last couple of weeks of the year and enjoy some more time at home, whether that looks like time together as a family IRL or catching up online together.

We should also celebrate the successes however small, like the fact you managed to get granny to work a laptop or the fact you’ve had time to read more, let’s look for the positives of 2020 and let’s raise a glass to the small victories!

I’ve myself really got into cocktail making this year, it’s been nice each weekend to take the time to learn how to make a new one, and enjoy the process. Of course, remember to please enjoy responsibly! This post is in no way encouraging you to bing drink, hopefully instead to show you some new discoveries and smaller brands you can support if you do decide to raise a glass of something alcoholic over the festive period and beyond. (Currently looking at the prospect of national lockdown for January so no judgement here! Lol)
